About

I’m a South African wine blogger making my way through 800 wineries!

 

Did you know that the SA wine industry is the 6th largest in the world?*
I don’t think anyone has been brave enough to count all the wineries in Cape Town/the Western Cape, believe me, I tried. Google it for yourself.
Maybe there are just too many. There is however a report that there are approximately  800-1000 wineries in South Africa and about 200 just from the Stellenbosch region alone. I then heard of a report of 560 registered wineries (but that excludes many boutique estates) so let’s go with a target of 800 for now 😉

I started out on a challenge in June 2016 to be the first woman to visit and blog about all 800 wine farms in the Western Cape. My goal is to visit at least 80 farms every fiscal so that the 800th farm can be celebrated by my 40th birthday. – Oh here’s hoping!

I hold a Marketing Degree from the AAA School of Advertising and my love for marketing, events and copy-writing has flourished into the online space.

I have been overwhelmed with how quickly this brand has grown. I’m definitely not a wine expert – I am just sharing my experiences and what I have learnt along the way. Meeting new people along this awesome journey!
